Richard P. Wildes received the PhD degree from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1989. Subsequently, he joined Sarnoff Corporation (Now SRI) in Princeton, New Jersey, as a Member of the Technical Staff in the Vision Technologies Group. In 2001, he joined the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at York University, Toronto, where he is an Associate Professor and a member of the Centre for Vision Research. Honors include receiving a Sarnoff Corporation Technical Achievement Award, the IEEE D.G. Fink Prize Paper Award for his Proceedings of the IEEE publication “Iris Recognition: An Emerging Biometric Technology,” and twice giving invited presentations to the US National Academy of Sciences.
